Jenson Button: A World Champion's Story
Jenson Button: A World Champion's Story

2.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting more, 2 Sept. 2010
This book provides a historical record of Jenson Button's career from karts to winning the Formula One World Championship in 2009. Its emphasis is on race history with some insight into his contract negotiations.

However, it does not fully convey to me what Jenson is like as a person. What are his feelings and emotions? I would like to discover information which I would not have come across in the motor sport press.

Perhaps the author was in too much of a rush to publish at the end of 2009.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 2 Sept. 2010
Ross Brawn is a very interesting and extremely talented person. I had hoped to learn more about his own background prior to Brawn GP being formed. About 75 pages are devoted to the first 54 years of his life. 241 pages are devoted to the year 2009, i.e. the focus is on the Brawn team, not the person.

We have quotations from each driver and Ross Brawn after virtually every practice/qualifying session and race in 2009. Most of these are in anodyne PR speak. What were their real feelings, how did Jenson psyche himself up for the penultimate GP of the year in Brazil, etc?

The author has forgotten that five British GPs took place at Aintree between 1955 and 1962. There are also a number of typos.

In summary I found this a disappointment.
